Tamil National Alliance (TNA) Batticaloa parliamentarian S. Jeyananthamoorthy's brother S. Thiyagachandra was shot dead by armed men in Oaddamaavadi, 1 km west of Vazhaichcheanai Monday evening around 6:30, according to his relatives.

Last year, on 21 July, the TNA parliamentarian, his wife and their two children narrowly escaped from a deadly Rocket Propelled Grenade (RPG) attack by paramilitary Karuna Group.

Mr. Thiyagaraja, 54, father of two, and the second among Mr. Jeyananthamoorthy's three brothers, has been employed at Vazhaichcheanai paper factory.

His body is being kept at Vazhaichcheanai hospital.
